After a dreadful 2015 season in the City of Brotherly Love, it is obvious the Philadelphia Phillies will need some help heading into the 2016 season. The Phillies young lineup did play better in the second half of the season, but this is still clearly a team in rebuilding mode. Andy MacPhail is in, and Ruben Amaro is out as the process continues to turn the Phillies back into a winner.
Finishing with the worst record in baseball at 63-99 the Phillies will have the 1st overall pick in the 2016 MLB Draft. That will help a few years down the road, but as far as the 2016 Major League season goes, the Phillies need to bring in cheap help.
